PIXAR AND THE AESTHETIC IMAGINATION: ANIMATION, STORYTELLING AND THE DIGITAL CULTURE. Eric Herhuth. University of California Press, Berkeley, 2016. 208 pp. with 15 ills. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9780520292550 In English.
Due date: December 2016. Publisher's description: In Pixar and the Aesthetic Imagination, Eric Herhuth draws upon film theory, animation theory, and philosophy to examine modes of animation storytelling that address aesthetic experience within contexts of technological, environmental, and socio-cultural change. Since producing the first fully computer-animated feature film, Pixar Animation Studios has been a creative force in digital culture and popular entertainment. But more specifically, its depictions of uncanny toys, technologically sublime worlds, fantastic characters, and sensorial intensities explore aesthetic experience and its relation to developments in global media, creative capitalism, and consumer culture. This investigation considers Pixar's artificial worlds and transformational stories as opportunities for thinking through aesthetics as a contested domain committed to newness and innovation as well as criticism and pluralistic thought.
